We skipped school ..errr... I mean...we went on a field trip. YAY!
Sometimes you just need a break from it all and take a moment to breath. We needed a day to have fun and get away from it all. So we tossed the school books and schedule out the window (just for the day) and went out on the boat with the grandparents.
Look at the beautiful sky and still water that we were blessed with. The view was beautiful. The kids tried to brave the 70 degree water but chickened out. Wimps! LOL Just kidding. I didn't even place a pinky toe in the water; at least they tried. This gal stayed in the boat. hahahah. The kids were mesmerized as the boat cut through the gentleness of the water. The sky was such a beautiful blue with puffy cotton candy clouds. The kids made sand castles as I soaked in the sun light. Ahhhhh!!!!! Relaxing.
Can I just say we all need these "get away moments". Just a moment to step away from the stresses of life and have some fun with the kids. They'll remember this fun day.
Kids want our time not our gifts.
God showed off with the beautiful canvas He painted for us that day. It was so beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice.
I'm reminded of this verse...
"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands." (Psalm 19:1)
